I will have my 9th infusion of remicade tomorrow!!!! I finally am able to go out, and work again!!! (I am sure that you have never heard that before;)!)
I can't believe that I somewhat have my life back!
I do remicade treatments every 28 days, and tomorrow I will graduate to every six weeks!!! please dont give up hope, i have been battling UC Since summer of 04 and with the help of my Gastro was finally taken off prednisone after 3 years.
I'm on 100 mg of imuran and 4X2 asacol plus the remi treatments and you know what? I look forward to my treatments everytime now, sounds kind of silly! It takes times, I have been where you are! I refuse to go back on prednisone, even if I have a bad case of bronchitis or my asthma flares up!!!! Remicade works, but it is not overnight, that is for sure!!!
